Abstract
    The life history of the Barents Sea capelin stock through the various phases from egg to maturity is reviewed, including distribution, feeding, growth, mortality at the different life stages. The ecological role of the capelin is discussed, as well as its population dynamics. The stock history, its abundance and exploitation is dealt with, together with the history of stock assessment and management. The main aim of the review is to compile and bring to light many not readily available sources of knowledge concerning the Barents Sea capelin stock. These include Russian literature, cruise reports, theses, various kinds of working documents.
